Thoughts For Friday

TGIF Friends.  I always love when Friday rolls around especially when it is Cinco de Mayo.  Mexican food + tequila makes me very happy:)

One of my all time favorite maxis is on sale for only $64.  I own it in 3 colors.  Such a fabulous dress- it is even great pregnant because it is so loose. Runs TTS I am wearing a 4.  It comes in so many pretty colors and the back is adorable.

Fun fact about me, I kill everything I plant so now I am obsessed with Cactus plants because I can actually keep them alive,  They are so easy and require zero care.  I picked up a few new ones at Lowes this week.  Sometimes they are hard to find but this time of the year they usually have a good selection.

I finally splurged on a nice sports bra and it has made such a big difference.  I used to always buy cheapie ones at TJMaxx but this one fits so much better with much more support.

Little Miss Attitude all the time these days.

Dress + Shoes

I made an oldie recipe but a favorite for dinner this week- Mozzarella Stuffed Chicken Meatballs.  Everyone always loves this one.

Had some wine with a few friends Wednesday.

What I wore: Dress runs on the large side so size down, I am in XS.

I took Frances Moon for her first mani/pedi.  She was beyond excited.  It seriously made my whole week.

She is wearing this two piece set.

I found the cutest embroidered blouse at old Navy- only $26 ladies!  It also comes in black, navy, red, and burgundy.  It runs on the large side I am wearing the small here but ended up ordering the XS.

Took the kids to dinner at Screen Door.  A great kid friendly spot on James Island.

I had the kale caesar salad.  I loved the addition of pickled onions to it.

Sterling got a trendy new haircut.


All Twine and Twig Necklaces are 25% off til Sunday with code MOTHERSDAY.  This makes a great Mother’s Day gift or treat for yourself.  I wear mine all the time, they are so easy to toss on with any outfit.  I am wearing this one in the photo above.


Love this.

    I need to start investing in cactus! Even my little mini-orchids from trader joes that were thriving on my one ice cube a week died on me this week. I have ZERO green thumb!
    Love your Mara Hoffman dress looks gorgeous! Have a great weekend!
